Hello to all, once again I am calling upon the community for input for Solaris announcer script suggestions.
 
To aid in this effort, I've worked through some of the high-level categories and structure we are seeking.  Please use this framework when considering your submissions.
 
RANDOM (can be said at any time)
 - announcer self-commentary
 - announcer to crowd encouragement
 - radio ID, callsigns, advertising
 - fictional commentary on Solaris legends

DAMAGE EVENTS
 - losing an arm, leg, limp states
 - engine damage
 - overheat and shutdown
 - turret destruction
 - player is NARC'd or TAG'd
 
DESTRUCTION
 - vehicle
 - Mech
 - BA
 
BUILD EVENTS
 - Mechs
 - vehicles
 - general
 
SCORING
 - taking the lead by a certain percentage
 - coming up last by a certain percentage
 
SPECIFIC PLAYER CALLS
 - actions by a specific pilot that can be verbally identified by vehicle type/class
 - example: "that pilot in the assault is really tearing up the field"
 - first entrance of new 'Mech/vehicle classes to the field
 
NEW PLAYER / PLAYER DEPARTURE
 - entering the game
 - leaving the game
 
GAME STATE COMMENTS - ENVIRONMENT
 - heat/environmental
 - time remaining
 - action picking back up after a lull in battle
 - reduced number of players

*******************************************************************************
Some other things to consider:
 
While we recognise that it might be fun to have MWLL forum community centric commentary, it may not be relevant for all players of the game (not everybody comes here or knows about pancakes).  As such, keep the "inside joke" type suggestions to a minimum if possible.
 
We also want to limit references to current pop-culture.
 
Keep it relatively clean.  If you were listening to commentators on a football or baseball game, they tend to maintain an air of professionalism whilst still being entertaining and conveying useful information to the audience.

I would like to gather as many submissions as possible in the next few days, so please - fire away!
Proud vendor of Soon™, brought to you by the makers of Someday™, Make Me a Ticket™ and Let's Talk About it Later™

Never mistake "the audience" for "the community".
